Well excuse me for trying!

I am a bit frustrated. I went way out of my way Friday to find out how to complete a project going on here at work. I didn't have to do what I did. It really was up to others to complete it but I wasn't busy at all so I decided to help.

I was very clear on my instructions and was sure to put them in email format so as to have a paper trail in case there were any discrepancies. I completed my part and thought all was well. UNTIL THIS MORNING!!

I received a phone call telling me that part of what I did and how I handled it was not correct. He even said that he told me not to send what I did in the way I did. But, I still have the email indicating what I am supposed to do and I did it exactly that way. I won't argue with him or try to tell him that he is wrong because of reasons that I will keep to myself. After all he is the customer and I am supposed to do what he needs done. It just pisses me off when I try to help when noone else does and then get blamed for something that I was told to do in the first place!

I guess this is more of a pride thing than anything else. I take my work very seriously. I do not want to make any mistakes, although being human that is bound to happen at one time or another. But THIS I was told to do.

Well, since I have vented enough I guess I feel better.

It still sucks though.

Kinda makes you wonder how Jesus felt as they were nailing him to the cross.
Or, as Bugs Bunny would say, "I knew I shouldn't have taken that left turn at Albuquerque."

Hi! Thanks for dropping by my bloggy. Your Boxers are loverly & so are your horsies. My mommy is in love with horsies especially pure white ones...I like horsies too but my hoomans will never let me get close to them. It's not like we're trying to nip their nose or something, sheesh! Anyway, do drop by next time. See ya!
